Council of Regents

The IASLC has developed a network of Regents around the world to constitute a Council of Regents responsible for a country or group of countries within a geographical region. The Regents have been appointed by the board to ensure effective communication between IASLC and the members, and potential members, of the IASLC in the country or countries for which they have responsibility. Please contact the Regent in your area to learn more about educational opportunities or ways you can become more involved. For general information on the Regent program, please contact: Kristin.richeimer@iaslc.org.
